As a free spirit, yogi and a lover of the arts it’s no surprise that I believe imagination is more valuable than information. But in actuality, is imagination more important than the acquisition of knowledge? I truly believe that in order to live your best life you must always be honest with yourself and never conform to another persons’ beliefs; rather create your own. In order to do that you need to have a creative thinking process of some sort.
Imagination that hasn’t been diminished by years of “adulting” and the education system failing to allow creativity to be expressed. I was still curious so I polled my Instagram followers. (Mind you this data is flawed because this poll was not generalized to the public), however, my data showed that 80% of my followers believed that imagination is more important than information; which was kind of expected due to the fact that these are my friends, and we have similar minds. So even with this verification, I wondered how many people out there truly understand the capabilities their own minds’ possess.
the health of your mind will dictate the reality of your life
Whatever is going on inside of you will be reflected outside. A still mind is like a weapon, sharp, deadly always ready for action; a restless mind is an easy target for chaos. If your mind is a chaotic womb, housing negative and unresolved energy, your life may reflect the same. Same goes for the mind that has been nourished with peace, patience, and love; when you fill the mind with positivity, it doesn’t matter what happens to you, you stay in the present moment enjoying this gift of life.
whatever you give power to: grows
This is a basic concept that plays a role in each persons’ life. The more you think about something the more it drives you crazy, whether that be positive or negative, stressing your mind out trying to learn new information is so overrated in this day and age. This is the time to feed your imagination and try to turn your dreams into reality. No matter how crazy they may seem, this world is what you make it, and only infinite possibilities exist.
open your mind to the endless possibilities; attain the unattainable, achieve the impossible
If you don’t get what you’re aiming for you will surely learn a few lessons along the way. What you give power to will grow, this is a fact. Quieting the voices in your head is the first step to allowing your creativity to flow freely. One must recognize what is happening within your head, find the true source of these thoughts; and heal those broken vibes.
Concentration daily develops into meditation; at first, you must allow thoughts to come and go, recognizing the energy and thoughts in your mind. Soon less and less chatter clouds your mind and you are free to be still and enjoy the peace. A still mind leads to a peaceful life and existence in this chaotic world that is ever changing. In due time your relentless effort will be rewarded, concentration becomes meditation and you can sit back and watch life happen around you, interacting with what serves your purpose.
Enjoy the process and each moment as you move closer to your best you. There will always be tests along the way, presenting in many different forms: a job, relationship family struggle, etc.
perspective is everything and if you change yours, you can change any situation
Life gives each one of us an opportunity for growth daily, the choice is yours on how to react to any given situation. The most grave of times can be managed with a sound mind, a solid support system and the willingness to be honest with yourself. Make every situation positive and learn from it; make this world what you want it to be, it’s very simple with the right tools in your belt. Imagination is the most important tool we have. ~Namaste.Published in
